Links for 11.15.09: I ate a Blucy.

*Money: This infographic shows how billions of dollars are spent. USING BLOCKS OF COLOR. The infographic. Not the people. Or the dollars.

*Automotive: Bad news for drivers who love whale penis – Russian car-maker Dartz is dropping the whale penis leather interior option they had planned for their luxury vehicles.

*Movies: Here’s a question for you – What if “Blade Runner” had been set in San Francisco? My dad took me to see “Blade Runner” when it was still in the theater. Until the one guy tried to pop the other guy’s eyeballs with his thumbs. Then we left. [snarkmarket]

*Television: One thing I like about Roger Ebert on Twitter is that he sometimes links to frivolities such as the 10 Greatest Cleavage Moments in Television History. Also, cleavage.

*News: Feltron cuts up 13 years of CNN data. I’ve talked about Feltron before. And I will again. At a later date. [waxy]

Links for 10.29.08: Footloose rises, the Beatles may return, Bjork weeps…

*BIG NEWS: Zac Efron is going to do a Footloose remake. My favorite scene from Footloose was the one with the dancing. And the hay.

*Rumors: Is a Beatles’ Rock Band coming out tomorrow? Also, is a global economic meltdown threatening our very way of life? Seriously. It’s something to think about. [daily swarm]

*Auctions: Christie’s is selling off some serious rock memorabilia, including stuff from Patti Smith, the Velvet Underground, the Ramones, and Bowie. By the way, thanks a lot for all the help on that Cat Power-Bowie cover, too. Assholes.

*Social commentary: Bjork comments on Iceland’s economy and environment – “Usually I don’t notice politics. I live happily in the land of music-making. But I got caught up in it because politicians seem bent on ruining Iceland’s natural environment.” [daily swarm]

*P2P: LimeWire to sell content from Comedy Central records through its legit P2P store.

*Time: A boombox watch from Flud. Seriously, if this thing were only 100X larger, I would be all over it. Also, Kanye’s blog does a shitty job of linking to the actual product or item posted about. Just saying. [kanye]

*Infographics: The History of the United States economy from GOOD magazine. It’s pretty. And pretty scary. Ha?

*Blogging: Blogging makes me tired. Here is the Twittercide thing I wrote for the day job.
